Item description for Clare Richardson: Harlemville by Clare Richardson Michael Mack...
Harlemville is a small community in North America that adheres to the philosophical writings of the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner and his Waldorf schooling system. The community encourages freedom of expression, creativity and imagination, which in turn is meant to imbue an uninhibited self-confidence and self-awareness rarely present in mainstream American society. Clare Richardson spent 24 months observing the community firsthand and found their reverence for nature and the "confident quietness" of this small place in the world to be captivating. With their quiet, formal clarity, her images evoke a nostalgic sense of innocence; Harlemville appears idyllic in its radical optimism.

A pictorial wonder land! Jan 16, 2004
This book is filled with crystal clear images of Woodland Ways, a wilderness survival and rites of passage summer camp in Harlemville NY, as well as a few local family pictures. On each page is one beautiful, large photo, and with no caption, the viewer is able to interpret each scene purely and unfettered. The book's colorful pictures evoke a sense of wonder, and will grace plenty of coffee tables and begin even more conversations. For art and nature-lovers alike this is a must have.
